Vintage Diorama Ornament

I love the simplicity of  these Vintage Diorama Ornaments.  
I haven't come across any so it looks like I get to make some.  These are the clear plastic photo ornaments.  When you  take them apart they become 2 ornaments costing me pennies.  They are tiny so I kept the decorating to a minimum.  Which is never easy!
I coated the inside of the ornament in clear rock candy distress glitter.


See, just clear and plastic... what a little glitter and ink can't accomplish.



I cut the Dimensional Star to float in the center and wrapped with tinsel twine to hide the lip of the ornament.


This one is the same but I used the antique linen distress glitter.


The mini red lantern is hung and wrapped in pine twine.


My second ornament I painted with candied apple distress paint and coated with clear rock candy. 


I painted the deer, spritzed the mini tree and added a teen pinecone.  I used the Bow Punch for the tiding bow.


The outside gets a coat of glitter too!  The 4th ornament is drying.


Hung from the tree.


It can be hard not to fill it.


I love the woodland feel of this one.


My empty little tree is slowly filling up with homemade vintage inspired ornaments.  I have fun every year adding to it.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.

Gifts made Easy

I love this little box that perfectly stores gift cards.  Eileen Hull does weekly Facebook Live videos and she just happened to make one of these! 

EEK... just loving the simplicity of this and I was totally inspired to make one... or a few myself.



It all starts with the Scallop Flap & Flower Box die and some matboard.  I cut some pattern paper and ran it through the Creative Station to make it all easier.

I used the new Ranger Letter It stamp Cheers from the Birthday Stamp set.  Like I said I stamped a few onto a Stitched Oval cut.

I picked up some velcro strips so I could cut the pieces I needed to size.  This way the scalloped flap stays in place.  

CHEERS...

You could add paper on the inside too if you wanted.
